Taxi in Yerevan: Overview
Yerevan is a relatively compact city, and it is very easy to stroll around the large center on foot. However, despite the size, city taxis are more than abundant. Literally at every turn you can meet different cars, brands and services plying across the city. A taxi ride within, the large center should not exceed 1000 AMD (USD 3). Taxi services throughout Armenia belong to the private business, and therefore, each owner of the company is trying to distinguish himself and make his mark. All private taxis have on both sides inscriptions with the labels of companies and telephone numbers. Armenians are people with a great sense of humor; it often appears in the names of taxi services: you can often find cars with funny logos, such as taxi service “Nu, Pogodi!” (translated as “Well, Wait!”) which evokes a feeling of nostalgia for a favorite cartoon! Among the most common taxi services names are featured beautiful female names or English words: «Elegant», «Rich», «Just», «VIP», «Markiza» etc.
Among the distinguishing signs of the licensed cars can be mentioned taxi icons on the roof and yellow license plates. Licensed vehicles are also equipped with meters that read and show the mileage amount for the way on the scoreboard. Make sure that the driver has turned on the counter before starting. Taxis without logos and yellow license plates are privately owned, and drivers tend to take a higher fee trying to fool foreigners. That is why we strongly advise you to refrain from trips by unlicensed cars to reduce the risk of being cheated.
In Yerevan, as well as in any other city, you can just catch a taxi on the street without a reservation simply waving your hand in the air and if the car is free then by all means it will stop. Always carry some small change in order to avoid problems with the change. The standard price is a minimum of 500-600 AMD for the first 5 km and 100-120 drams for each further km. It is also possible to rent a car and driver for a day outside of Yerevan, the price will fluctuate around $ 20 plus the amount of the gas. In this case everything depends on your talent of how well you can bargain with the driver!
